AQIP Action Projects (2016-2017)

Aligning CLC’s Financial and Strategic Plans

This AQIP project was identified through the AQIP Strategy Forum that CLC attended in 2016 and is intended to address specific feedback from the 2015 Systems Appraisal by: (1) developing a system of assessing the alignment of CLC's strategic goals with its annual budget; (2) developing a process for applying the assessment; and (3) creating a charter for relevant financial committees. This project is aligned with AQIP Category 5: Knowledge Management and Resource Stewardship and AQIP Category 4: Planning and Leading.

Credit for Prior Learning

This AQIP project will review the ways students can receive college credit for college level learning that occurs outside of the institution. The main outcome for this project will be the recommendation of an institutional policy and associated processes regarding the granting of student credit based on prior learning experiences. While certain methods are currently in practice, this project would look to expand the options offered to students, increase student accessibility and understanding of their options, and engage faculty as experts in evaluating this learning.  This project directly addresses CLC’s Strategic Goals to “advance student learning, success, and completion” and “maximize educational opportunity and equity in student outcomes”. This project is aligned with AQIP Category 2: Meeting Student and Other Stakeholder Needs.

Sustainability across the Curriculum

This AQIP project will build on the work done in FY 2016 through the A Living Laboratory for Sustainability AQIP project. This year the project will: (1) assess opportunities for sustainability curriculum in current courses and programs; (2) identify where sustainability exists in our current curriculum; and (3) produce specific goals for incorporating sustainability as part of curriculum or program development.   This project directly addresses CLC’s Strategic Goal to “promote excellence in the areas of Diversity, Global Engagement, Sustainability, and Wellness as strengths within the college and Lake County community” and aligns with AQIP Category 1: Helping Students Learn.
